State College has been named the fourth most exciting place in Pennsylvania, according to Movoto, a real estate brokerage site.

“We started with a list of the 50 most-populated places and then ranked them with factors like nightlife, active life options, population density, etc.,” Devon Buechler, a public relations associate, said in a news release.

According to Movoto’s website, 80 percent of State College residents are between the ages of 18 and 34.

“It is easily one of the most densely populated places in the state, so you’re always bound to run into somebody, and for the number of residents, this place is simply littered with nightlife and music venues,” the site said.

State College was ranked behind Pittsburgh, West Chester and Lancaster. Phoenixville, Easton, Philadelphia, Reading, Harrisburg and Bethlehem rounded out the top 10.
